But how fast can we recover after being kicked in the balls?

Alright, I get that this Foreign Policy post on the preparedness of Earth for an alien attack is mostly in jest. Still, my problem with this list is that in all likelihood an alien force would either destroy us or decimate a good chuck of the planet’s population so having a few super advanced toys wouldn’t really make much of a difference. A real, feasible defense would be some kind of plan for when a cataclysmic disaster occurs. Is Earth prepared for some kind of huge catastrophe? How fast can it turn things around if there is a surprise attack?

Look, I take it as a given that if an alien attack happens, we’ll get our asses kicked initially but that doesn’t mean we’re doomed, as all mediocre action movies tell us.
